Finally, A Great Headlamp (Coast XPH30R Headlamp)

Updated: Sep 28, 2022

If you're looking for a versatile and useful lighting solution for camping, working around the house, biking, or hiking, you don't need another fancy flashlight. You need a Coast XPH30R headlamp!

Hey, this is Dean with WiseBuysGuys! Today, we'll be talking about another product that has just kind of become a standout. Sometimes you get something like, 'oh, this is really cool! I like it.' And sometimes you get something where you use it way more than you think you would because it works so well.

This thing is perfect for hiking, biking, camping, and even walking the dog at night. The Coast XPH30R is a hands-free light featuring a dust-resistant, weather-proof aluminum body, rechargeable battery, and swivel head for dynamic directional lighting. Though it appears as your average headlamp at first, you soon learn this thing has a few tricks up its sleeve.

For starters, the light is detachable and doubles as a handheld flashlight, but it also features a strong built-in magnet and a real-time power indicator light. This, combined with Coast's patented Pure Beam technology, offers variable lighting options that range from spot beam to flood beam.

The Coast XPH30R features four output options in total: low, medium, high, and the ultra-bright Turbo Mode. And as I mentioned, the head swivels, allowing you to also position it up and down, so you don't have to worry about shining it in someone's eyes during a conversation.

Using the Coast to light up a visitor.

Some of you may already know, but I'm an outdoor guy. So, a headlamp is a must-have gadget in my book. From working in dark spaces to hiking and camping, I take the Coast XPH30R with me everywhere. In fact, I keep it in my car and just bring it inside to charge. And speaking of charging, one of the things I really like about this product is that it features a USB-C charging port. Since the rest of my devices use this type of cable, it just makes my life easier.

In terms of overall quality, I am impressed. The Coast XPH30R charges fast and is crazy bright, making it my go-to headlamp.

Here's a quick overview of the pros and cons I've discovered:


  • Solid construction

  • Adjustable beam

  • Turbo mode

  • High-quality swivel head

  • Rechargeable batteries

  • Comfortable

  • Fast Charging with USB-C port


  • Turbo mode only lasts a few minutes

  • Some consider it heavy

Here are some positive and negative online reviews for the Coast XPH30R:

  • "I love this! It's one of the lighter weight headlights, the brightness options are great, and the magnet is plenty strong enough to stick wherever under a vehicle if I don't feel like wearing it on my head."

  • "This is my go-to light inside the house and outdoors. Very bright, and battery life is great."

  • "As an electrician, I use a headlamp quite a lot. Milwaukee 475 is too heavy for my head if I'm not wearing a hard hat. Klein no longer holds this position after just 3 months. This one is solid, built tough. Always starts at the same brightness level, which I like. Nice adjustable beam. Last all day for me. Love it"

  • "Unfortunately, this is so heavy that it bounces around unless you pull the band so tight that you cut off circulation!"

As you can see from a few selected reviews, one commenter notes the weight. I agree it's a bit on the heavy side, but without fail, every time I use it, working, hiking, biking, and more, the weight has never been an issue. It's well-balanced, solid, and feels good. I forget it's on. Additionally, I have other headlamps that are lighter, but the lighter weight just doesn't feel secure. In this case, the weight seems to be an added benefit.

Ultimately, if you're looking for a well-constructed headlamp that swivels as it should and features rechargeable batteries, you can't go wrong with the Coast XPH30R. This light is crystal clear and bright and comes in handy for so many situations. It's definitely worth checking out! I know with this headlamp, I can easily find my misplaced beer when camping at night, and I can easily spot the bear going through my garbage.

And there you have it! The Coast XPH30R is everything a headlamp should be. Let us know if you have any questions about the product!
